(CIO.au) Australia’s federal government has launched AustCyber’s Canberra Cyber Security Innovation Node, aimed at accelerating cyber capability development, innovation and commercialisation across the country.
The launch of the Canberra Node follows on from the opening of the NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node in July. There are now a total of seven innovation nodes in Australia. The other nodes have been established in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, and Tasmania.
“The Canberra Node – a partnership between the ACT Government and AustCyber – is accelerating the growth of the ACT’s cyber security sector, aligned with AustCyber’s national mission,” said Michelle Price, CEO of AustCyber, in a statement.
The Canberra Node has already undertaken activities with companies with an international reach including archTIS, Cogito Group, Penten and Quintessence Labs.
